Swap Details
This swap is a variation on previous One Tiny Harry Potter Thing swaps.  In addition to crafting OTHPT, your package must also include a Valentine's card, and a small Valentines treat. Both the card and treat may be either handmade or store bought (no judgements here!), and may be HP themed, or not.  Please do take your partner's preferences and dietary restrictions into account when choosing your treat.  The focus of the swap is the crafted OTHPT.  It should be physically small and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, you could embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)  

* You will receive only one partner.
*Your OTHPT must be 4"x4" or smaller.
*You must include 1 Valentine's card for your partner, either handmade or purchased.
*You must include 1 small Valentine's treat for your partner, either handmade or purchased.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings/pendant is tiny.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask your organizer!

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner.  Further, as per Craftster guidelines, you must post in this thread at least once a week. You could just stop in for a quick hello.....or if on holiday or will be without internet access or anything of the such, just post a message....it gives your partner and organizer warm fuzzy feelings to know you are still around.

Final note: Since this is a holiday-specific swap, if you have not sent by 3 days past Sendouts, you will get temporary negative feedback until you send.  I don't mean to be harsh, but no one wants to be the only kid in class to not get a Valentine.  This temporary negative will be reversed when your partner receives.  

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer: (Remember to send your info to your organizer via Private Message (PM) and not to reply with it here)
